We have developed our curriculum in line with our Vision. In particular, we recognise that we want our children to understand their place in the world and know they can make a difference. We believe they have the potential to change the world and be future leaders for positive change – in their family, community, country or the world.
In order to capture this, we promote Global Citizenship throughout our curriculum. A global citizen is someone who is aware of and understands the wider world - and their place in it. They take an active role in their community, and work with others to make our planet more equal, fair and sustainable. Through our Curriculum, we encourage our young people to develop the knowledge, skills and values they need to engage with the world. It enables pupils to think critically about world issues and to develop an awareness of the impact our own actions can have on others and ourselves.
We make links in our planning across the six global citizenship themes throughout our curriculum.
|Social justice and equity||Identity and diversity||Sustainable development|
|Peace and conflict||Human rights||Power and governance|
These six themes are all inherently linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
We are continuously developing our Global Citizenship curriculum. We recognise that we live in a changing world and want our curriculum to reflect that.
Please see St Stephen's Year Group Overviews for Global Citizenship links in each year group.
Our recent Year 6 Pledges show the impact this curriuclum has on our pupils.
